Weather Prediction:
Tomorrow's strong NW winds should create ideal conditions for a fabulous movement of raptors over the park!!!  The flight will likely be down low just over the tree tops and should create excellent views of the birds as they pass.  I'll be at the park very early waiting in anticipation!

See you there, don't be late!
